Triple Crown Inspiration
Isn’t it most every girls dream to have a horse of her own? To experience the smell of fresh hay, the warmth of the horse’s breath as they smell your hand in greeting, and their soft hair brushing your face as you embrace their neck in a hug? Growing up on a horse farm I was able to experience all of this and more! Then when my parents acquired a stallion whose Great Great Grandfather was Secretariat, the dream of one day being in the stands at any of the Triple Crown Races became an inspiration. Each year, I would be intrigued by the dresses and the hats that the ladies in attendance would wear. I would watch as on-lookers would have picnics on the lawn in the in-field. The overall prestige and elegance in which the horse owners presented themselves created a memorable and inviting atmosphere.
